Pre-Season Matches & Friendlies[edit]

Local Camp[edit]

Al Wasl has abandoned its annual habit of traveling to Europe for summer pre-season training camp as per the instructions of coach Diego Maradona. The new coach decided to set up camp at home as it clashes with the Holy Month of Ramadan where all the players would be fasting during the day, making it difficult to set up an external training camp.[33] The Internal camp included two matches against lower division clubs only.

2012 GCC Champions League[edit]

Al Wasl FC is back to this regional competition after 2 years of winning it in the 2010 Tournament. This time Al Wasl enters after losing its chances in winning the 2011–12 UAE Pro-League and the 2011–12 UAE President's Cup, which makes the 2012 GCC Champions League a good opportunity to salvage its current season.

UAE President's Cup 2011-12[edit]

The President Cup's draw has put Al Wasl in a very difficult side of the elimination matrix. All the matches were considered early finals, starting with a match against Al-Ahli Dubai that ended with a historic 4-0 win for Al Wasl. The next match was set against Al Wahda S.C.C. which was behind the elimination of Al Wasl FC in the previous UAE President's Cup 2011-12. Al Wahda S.C.C. was able to eliminate Al Wasl FC again, sending them to a very early summer after losing the chance on competing in the only obtainable major trophy in the season after the team's position in the Pro League to 7th after losing to Dubai Club, few days from the Cup's Quarterfinals.

Etisalat Cup 2011-12[edit]

The Etisalat Cup is a gap-filler between the official tournaments. It does not involve the International Players. It was the first tournament of the season, and the first ever official appearance for the Legendary Diego Maradona in the UAE as Al Wasl FC Coach. Al Wasl reached the Semifinal after a fierce group-round race, and then lost 0-1 in the Semifinal despite displaying a decent performance.
